Lojong Interupt!

Okay, big interruptions and frankly, they will contribute to this study when I get the chance to write.  Having this study going makes me focus, and while I am disciplined anyway (three dozen++ years and things do become habit) it focuses my attention differently knowing I am going to share insights.   I have to finish the insight to be able to communicate with an audience.  But the biggest reason I’ve not had time to write is crazy people (not me of course) AND bidding on possible projects.

Next week!

Until then, one of my first Buddha studies on my hand-made paper . . .

    I love your paper and figured right away it was another talent if yours. Used to make it myself and use flowers from my garden. A very relaxing, enjoyable hobby.

    So glad you are able to exclude yourself from the crazies. Had me worried for a second 😍

    • How did I miss this comment? I love love love making paper!

      • Sammy D. says:

        🙂 I had two big metal sheets I’d place below and above a stack of felts in the driveway then drive my car tires over them to squeeze out the water before hanging the paper on my clothesline.

        Do you have the equipment or how do you dry yours?

        • It sounds like you are making paper western style. I was taught by Marilyn Wold, and her method was a combination of Western and Japanese — there was no pressing, just gently releasing the pieces onto a sheet of plywood to dry. I have gotten rid of many things, but not my papermaking tools, in hopes that one day I will have time and a wet area to do this again.

            Ahhh I see 🙂

            Yes, one of my biggest regrets leaving my favorite house was the unfinished basement where I had a sink and oodles of space without feeling cramped or like I would ruin carpet, etc. I keep thinking I’ll take a class again at some point.

          • We’ve got a big shared kitchen with a big sink at the studio but not like I need. And we have dirty kitchenmates! 😉

Love to hear from you....
